However, despite the Japanese manufacturer looks With discontent are not interested in the case, but they turn their attention from a number of markets around Japan. A spokesman said they believe the Japanese steel mills, it now appears China, Southeast Asia and Japan’s domestic market compared to the U.S. market to be “much more important.”
While Tokyo‘s messages are complaining that they appeal the court’s decision to the United States was “very disappointed”, but Japan Iron and Steel Federation and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan and the Japanese steel mills, are also not prepared to comment on the verdict.
